The Minor in Leadership Studies promotes college student leadership development by educating undergraduate students for and about leadership in a complex world. The goal of the Minor is to prepare students to serve effectively in formal and informal leadership roles in campus, local, national, and global contexts. The Minor also encourages students to identify a working philosophy of leadership that can advance students’ thinking around ethics, civic engagement, and the importance of working within diverse and multicultural environments. These areas are critical aspects of leadership that require faculty and students to build and critically evaluate existing theoretical, research-based, and practical knowledge of leadership. Students in the Minor can use their knowledge, skills, and competencies gained from this academic program to enhance their sense of self, engagement with others, and better identify their values in future aspirations. Core courses in the Minor are sequenced to meet increasingly complex sets of learning outcomes across cognitive, personal development, and group/organizational domains.
The Minor in Leadership Studies consists of 15 credits (5 classes). The Certificate in Leadership Studies consists of 21 credits. Please consult the undergraduate catalog for program requirements:
